Join the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in Boycotting Israeli Settlement Products

At the 2012 General Assembly, the PC(USA) voted by an overwhelming majority to boycott all products manufactured in Israeli settlements located in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The boycott of these products serves as a nonviolent means through which Presbyterians can work for a peaceful solution to the conflict in Israel-Palestine. Please join the growing number of Presbyterians who have already pledged their support for the PC (U.S.A.) boycott of products manufactured in Israeli settlements by endorsing this pledge.
